Oslo University Hospital and Sopra Steria win the Microsoft 2017 Health Innovation Award

Surgical planningA group of researchers at the Intervention Centre Oslo University Hospital and Sopra Steria win the Microsoft 2017 Health Innovation Award for bringing Microsoft HoloLens technology into the operating theatre. The award was handed out during HIMSS 2017. A Sugical Navigation system developed at the Intervension Centre has been implemented on the HoloLens platform from Microsoft in collaboration with Sopra Steria. The goal is to improve surgery of liver cancer and heart deformities by visualizing the existing 3D model of the actual organ in Microsoft Hololens. The system is also used by cardiologists involved in treatment of congenital heart disease. Read more on our Twitter account @InterventionCen.

Ralf Greisiger new PhD on Objective Measurements and Cochlear Implants Imaging

Orgn 19. des. 2016 Dipl.ing. Ralf Greisiger at the Department of Informatics defended his Thesis in a dissertation for the degree of Ph.D with the title Objective Measurements and Cochlear Implants Imaging. The PhD thesis from Ralf Greisiger investigated objective measurements and imaging of Cochlear Implants (CI). Since 1997 he has been working with CI patients in an effort to improve patient speech perception outcomes. A CI is a device implanted in the head which allows deaf or partly deaf people to hear by stimulating the inner ear electrically. The studies were carried out at Oslo University Hospital – Rikshospitalet, which has the national responsibility for all deaf children in Norway. Each year 20-30 children are born deaf in Norway. Also, some children and adults lose their hearing progressively. Every year, approximately 125 adults and children receive a CI at Rikshospitalet.

Hipernav- new EU-ITN project coordinated by The Intervention Centre

HipernavThe Intervention Centre at Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet is granted approximately NOK 40 mill. for the project HiPerNav (High Performance Soft-tissue Navigation). The project, that will be running for 4 years, is coordinated by Ole Jakob Elle head of Technology Research at The Intervention Centre and associate professor at Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. The consortium consists of 14 participating organisations from leading European universities, hospitals and industry which through the education of 16 PhD’s will develop the navigation systems of the future for the improvement of liver surgery. In addition to Oslo University Hospital which coordinate the project, Sintef and NTNU is project partners on the Norwegian side. The other European beneficiaries and partner organisations are University of Bern, Cascination, Inselspital-Stiftung, University of Delft, University of Cordoba, University Paris 13, INRIA, Siemens, NVIDIA, Innovasjon Norge and Yes!Delft. The project will develop new technological solutions that intend to simplify and improve accuracy in surgical navigation, which will be clinically validated at The Intervention Centre by surgeon Bjørn Edwin and at the hospital Inselspital-Stiftung in Bern. NorMIT’s research platform for surgical navigation, financed through the Large-Scale Research Infrastructure funding from the Norwegian Research Council, will be used in parallel with the integration of the new methods into a clinical product through the industrial partner Cascination.
